Joni K arrives at your house. She’s paid to stay in your home, through a website. But upon walking into your spare room, Joni tells you: I grew up here. This was once my bedroom. And it’s creepy, sure… but Joni’s funny, and young, and vivacious. You and your partner have been arguing constantly, the night is already looking dark and long – so how could things get any worse?
I got to take you back. Make a big slice in the night, step over the road like this. Remember what you are, when bloomed. All your roots in a different mud now. Different thing.
